Trump on Paul Ryan: ‘Can Be Worked With,’ ‘Wish He Was Stronger’ on Illegal Immigration

On Lou Dobbs’ Thursday broadcast on the Fox Business Network, Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump sounded off on Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) and his announcement that he would be a candidate for House Speaker.

Trump told host Lou Dobbs he saw Ryan as someone he could work with, but also said he wished he was stronger on illegal immigration.

“I think he can be worked with, absolutely,” Trump said. “It sounds like it’s now something he wants and sounds like the conservative groups within — that everybody said was going to oppose him – it sounds like they’re coming into line. It’s time they choose somebody and I think it’s going to be him. It sounds to me like they’re coalescing and going to choose Paul Ryan, who’s a very nice person. I know him a little bit, not very well. I wish he was stronger on the situation with the whole illegal immigration, but perhaps he’ll get stronger as time goes by.
